Out in the Bay - Gay Radio from San Francisco    

Queer histories, herstories, personalities and issues are explored with humor, insight, and sensitivity each week on Out in the Bay.  We've been called “the gay Fresh Air” and even "the gay Tavis Smiley." We’ve interviewed such celebrities as film directors Ang Lee and John Waters, comedians Margaret Cho and Marga Gomez, singers Leslie Gore and Michael Feinstein,  actors, authors and more.  We’ve also featured historians, scholars, and activists -- including Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin -- with compelling stories about the reality of LGBT life.

Phyllis + Del: Six Decades of Love

Long-time lesbian activists Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin were together 55 years before they could legally wed.

On this Valentine's weekend, Out in the Bay honors one of San Francisco's favorite couples - pioneering civil rights activists Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin. Valentine's Day was their anniversary. They co-founded the nation's first lesbian political organization, the Daughters of Bilitis, in 1955. They were together more than 55 years before they could legally wed, as the first same-sex couple to marry in San Francisco City Hall in 2008. They had also been the first same-sex couple to wed in February 2004 when Mayor Gavin Newsom challenged state law. (He lost the first round, but eventually won). On this special edition of Out in the Bay, hear Del & Phyllis' love story, shared with producer Eric Jansen over their kitchen table in 2006, along with some of their favorite music and tales of life in San Francisco from 1950 to now. Also on this encore broadcast, outLoud Radio brings us perspectives on love from young, old and in-between.

Blackmail, My Love, is a new noir murder-mystery novel set in San Francisco, 1951 - "The Dark Ages of Queerdom," as author and illustrator Katie Gilmartin puts it - when cops raided gay and lesbian bars, beat up their patrons, and demanded "protection" money, and when lesbians and gay men were so afraid of exposure they were easy blackmail targets.  Eric Jansen's guest on Out in the Bay is historian, author, printmaker and Queer Ancestors Project founder
